One of the two of you, my dear readers, may remember Part 1 of this topic. I couldn’t think of anything great about getting older. I am still thinking. In the meantime, I have decide to take a new approach. I will interview people about this topic, as your reporter-on-the-street, so to speak.
So, here is our first
“Tell me something great about getting older.”
Child, age 6. “I can get a driver’s license and drive you anywhere you want to go, Mom. And I’ll keep the car clean. Does the driver’s license include anything about keeping your car clean because I can’t read.”
Boy, age 8 with sly grin. “You are closer to going to heaven.”
Preteen, age 11 1/2, “You get more privileges, like you can get a job.”
Adolescent boy, age 14 1/2, “The insurance rates go down on sports cars.”
So, there you have it. Motivating reasons to get older. Thank you boys.
